I took my 6009 to my watchmaker but decided to go and get it back. Why? Because I missed it :D - well more accurately because A LOT of good NOS parts have been sourced now (but I don't have them yet) and why not wear it while I wait!
Abuse it while you will enrico, when it looks as good as Artys, you'll pamper it; or will you?

Looking good Eric. I can't wait to upgrade my bezel to the new one, it would be interesting to know if it has just faded?? Can you take a pic of yours, it would be interesting to compare. Have an awesome yesterday 😊👍

A pic of my current old one? BTW, I just noticed the NOS second hand isn't quite right, unless it's upside down (which it appears to be) and the yellow is applied only to the top side - which I suppose is likely.

I'm pretty sure mine has the 6010 bezel, as doesn't seem to be faded, dose yours have any yellow left??

The 7c46 movement is still in use today and I'm pretty sure you can service them too. Almost bullet proof from what ive read. Mine has no color at all, but its a shiny clean white,??? If only they could talk, the story's they could tell

An update: more parts came in a week or so ago - Dan (Artemis12) and I split a lot of various OEM parts. NOS crystal now will go in instead of the aftermarket sapphire. Just keeping everything correct, considering the rarity of the watch.
Now the watch is back at my watchmaker's shop for a couple of weeks while I twiddle my thumbs... 😐
